A Shady Decision

Forever21
Forever21 Sunglasses ($5.80)

There are two theories when it comes to sunglasses:

1) Buy expensive ones so you are more careful to not break or lose them

2) Buy cheap ones because they will inevitably get broken or lost

I started out subscribing to theory #2 because, frankly, I didn’t have the financial ability to do otherwise. After college, I gave #1 a try and I admit it worked. Unfortunately, I moved six times in six years and my first splurgy shades got lost somewhere in the mix. I was so mad at myself for losing them, I went back to the #2 theory.

But last week, I broke my cheapo pair of sunglasses. And I lost the few cheapos I had before it, so I’m back to square one… or two… can’t decide which theory. But I know I need some shades asap because that thing called “sun” we haven’t seen for ages is actually coming out a little more often and my baby blues need some protection.

Killture High-End Sunglasses ($216.58)

So, I’ve been doing some research. On the cheap side, Forever21 wins without a doubt. Most pairs go for $5.80 and are super stylish. They probably wont last long, but if you’re going to lose or break them any way, who cares.

While researching the expensive side, I did find a fun line called Killture. I don’t think I could ever pull off something like this. Very few people could, but Lady Gaga is one of them.

If you have a taste for swanky shades, but have an aversion to wearing studs near your eyeballs, there’s a designer eyewear  trunk show in West Chester coming up soon you might want to check out. Here are the deets:

Monday, March 22, 4:30 – 7:30pm

Cincinnati EyeCare Team
Union Centre Blvd Location
8629 N. Pavillion Dr.
West Chester, OH 45069

Designer Trunk Show featuring Prada, Dolce & Gabbana & Ray-Ban. Eyewear vendors will have their full selection of eyewear on hand to try on and purchase. Special discounts up to 20% off. You will also be able to register to win a free pair of sunglasses at the event.

I’ve never been to this shop before, but my cousin just opened a wine bar (The Wise Owl) right near there. So I might stop in there for a glass of liquid courage to go back to my theory #1 ways.
